Abstract (en)

[origin: EP1911623A2] A control system for a vehicle with a plurality of selectively variable characteristics includes a mode selector input device (14C) and a characteristic adjustment input device (14A,14B,14D,14E). Manipulation of the mode selector input device causes the control system to alternate between first and second modes of operation. In the first mode of operation, manipulation of the characteristic adjustment input device causes a first variable characteristic to change. In the second mode of operation, manipulation of the characteristic adjustment input device causes a second variable characteristic to change. The control system thus enables a single input device to control multiple characteristics or multiple vehicle systems, which enables a corresponding reduction in the quantity of input devices in a vehicle passenger compartment.
